Last night I had dinner with a friend and her baby. She was telling us that at nine months, babies have depleted their naturally stored iron that they are born with and now need to be getting their needed iron through food, such as the famous rice cereal. This was a concern for her because her baby was not a fan of solid food. Later in the conversation her baby starts picking her nose, much to mommy's appall. My friend said that her baby just eats all of her boogers, much to her dismay. I, of course, mention that if I were her, I would ask the doctor if there was any nutritional value in baby boogers...perhaps protein, iron, you get the just. Everyone laughed. But sadly, my dears, I would TOTALLY ask my doctor this. Cuz seriously, problem solved! A little booger now and then never hurt anyone! This makes me wonder though, that if I ever have children...will there be anything I won't let them eat?
